Confirmation Final Exam

I delight in teaching confirmation more and more each year. Part of it is the simple joy of teaching with Martha. Part of it is my embracing of small classes, that were initially disappointing after years in Minnesota with classes as large as 30 per group. This year was totally unique with four girls. I was the lone male! At times the class got so giggly, I had to step back in bewilderment. In addition, all four girls really loved each other and embraced a new girl to the group and community.

So instead of a formal final exam and presentation at church, one family hosted a meal for the other three (and Martha and me) and the girls recited the books of the Bible and recounted the entire story of the Old Testament using the pictures they created after each class.

We began at 6:00 p.m. and laughed and giggled and even teared up until about 9:00 p.m. What a privilege!
